Premier Inn, the UK’s leading hotel business, has announced the opening of its debut hotel in the Lake District National Park. The brand’s latest property will open in Keswick on 13th February 2023. The opening brings the brand’s network in and around the national park to six properties.
Premier Inn Keswick will boast 71 guestrooms and is expected to welcome approximately 30,000 clients a year. It will offer guests a choice of Premier Inn’s very latest ‘Standard’ bedroom as well as 12 ‘enhanced’ Premier Plus rooms.
Premier Inn’s parent company, Whitbread, has already hired 24 permanent team members to run the hotel. In advance of the opening, the team is undertaking voluntary conservation work to support local trees and is fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Opening a new hotel is always a big moment. It is even more special when you have a connection to the local area like I do in Keswick. I am very proud of the team we have recruited to run the hotel with me, many of whom are from Keswick and the local area, and I know they will do an excellent job of welcoming our guests and giving them the warm Premier Inn welcome we are known for. I can’t wait to open the doors and start playing a positive role in the local community.
Karl Hetherington, Manager of Premier Inn Keswick
